Serving his lifth year as ad- 
ministrative head of the uni- 
versity, Dr. George A. Bowman, 
combining a genial personality 
with progressive ideas, has be- 
come symbolic of the univer- 
sity's expansion and rise to 
eminence as a scholastic insti- 

Under his guidance there has 
been a tremendous expansion 
of housing and classroom facili- 
ties to handle the increased 
enrollment of recent years. 

Dr. George A. Bowman 

Dr. Bowman was instrumental in bringing national 
sororities and fraternities to this campus, and also see- 
ing to it that only the better ones be permitted to come 
on the campus. 

As a student of education at Western Reserve, 
Columbia, Chicago and Harvard Universities, he 
achieved a broad background for his teaching. 

Since Dr. Bowman has been President the school 
has increased in acreage as well as enrollment. Three 
buildings are almost completed, which include a men's 
dorm, a student union, and a new hospital. 

Helping the President with his many and varied 
tasks is Mrs. Alice Makinson, Secretary to the President. 
With her assistance, students and faculty communicate 
their problems to the President. 

Dr. George A. Bowman 
Mrs. Alice Makinson 



Each year the Ohio Senate consents to the Ohio 
governor's appointment of one man for a five-year term 
to the Board of Trustees of Kent State University. He 
belongs to a group of six members, and one is an ex- 
officio member, Columbus's Clyde Hissong, the State 
Superintendent of Public Instruction, who doesn't attend 
the meetings. 

The five members meet once each month, usually 
in President Bowman's office, or occasionally at the 
Board treasurer's office. They direct, and officiate at 
Kent State University affairs, and each also works 
actively and successfully at his business or profession 
in Ohio. Their problems include the budget, honorary 
degree grants, contracts for building, and tentative 
appointments for the approval of the Board. 

The president of the Board, whose term expires in 

1953, is John R. Williams. He is the Lake County Super- 
intendent of Schools, resides at Madison, and has a 
Painesville office. 

Joseph B. Hanan is the vice-president of the Board 
until 1952. He resides in Akron and is a retired B. F. 
Goodrich official. 

Until 1949 the secretary for the Board is Robert C. 
Dix, who resides in Kent, and publishes the Ravenna 
"Evening Record" and the Kent "Courier-Tribune". 

1950 ends the term of Otto J. Korb, Ph.D., as the 
Board treasurer. He superintends the East Cleveland 
Public Schools. 

Also a Board member is Charles H. Lake, LL.D. He 
now serves as an advisor to Cleveland's Superintendent 
of Public Schools. 

SEATED: John R. Williams, Otto J. Korb, Pres. George A. Bowman, Robert C. Dix, Charles H. Lake. 
ABSENT: Joseph B. Hanan. 



John Reed Spicer 

Arden L. Allyn 


Dr. John Reed Spicer came to Kent State from 
Westminster, where he also held the position of 
Dean. His versatility and sympathetic under- 
standing of undergraduates' needs and prob- 
lems have made him one of the most popular 
administration staff members. 

As Dean of the College of Liberal Arts, Dr. 
Spicer has made every effort to accommodate 
the several thousand students who account for 
the arts college lead in enrollment at Kent State. 

Sensing the need for more thoroughly trained 
students in graduate schools, Dean Spicer has 
been concentrating on the pre-professional cur- 
ricula in his college, along with a revised sys- 
tem of faculty advisors. 

In the last dozen years the College of Busi- 
ness Administration has earned a place of its 
own at Kent State due primarily to the work of 
Dean Arden L. Allyn. When Dean Allyn first 
came to the University back in 1934, the College 
of Business Administration was practically un- 
noticed, but at present it has fifteen major fields 
of study possible for students interested in 

Dean Allyn is the only pre-war academic 
dean still serving the university in that capacity. 
The reputation of the BA college has prospered 
in outside business circles to a great extent 
since the year 1934. 

Dean Raymond E. Manchester has held the 
office of Dean of Men since 1920. Dean Man- 
chester is probably known best for his ingenuity 
in establishing imaginative traditions. The 
buggy wheel that was supposed to have been 
lost scores of years ago by the founder of our 
neighboring university is probably the most 
famous. It seems that this wheel was lost in 
the mire where Kent State now stands. This 
wheel was recovered and painted and is now 
used for a trophy for the winner of the Kent 
State-Akron University football game. The 
wheel must bring good luck to the university 
because it has been hanging in the genial 
dean's office for the last two years. 

Dean Manchester has capably handled the 
overflow of male students on the campus in his 
usual easy and likeable way. 



Realizing the need for good teachers and 
their importance, Dean Robert I. White of the 
College of Education has incorporated the 
progressive methods obtained from the Uni- 
versity of Chicago, where he received his 

Although Kent State is no longer the teach- 
ers' college it was twenty years ago, Dean 
White has recognized the ever-important role 
that Kent fulfills in supplying teachers for north- 
eastern Ohio. 

At present Kent State has teachers in all the 
counties and large cities in the surrounding 
area, and Dean White is doing a tremendous 
job in helping to alleviate the teacher shortage 
in the area. 

Since he came to Kent State in 1924, genial 
Dean Fren Musselman, Dean of Summer School 
and Extension, has enlarged his position from 
handling a few vacationing school teachers and 
night students into a job of handling thousands 
of students, mostly veterans going to school on 
an accelerated program. 

Perhaps in a few years the enrollment will be 
reduced, but for the last couple years the 
enrollment for the summer session has been 
larger than the enrollment for the regular ses- 
sions before the war. 

But in the meantime Dean Musselman is 
capably handling the heavy enrollment of 
serious students in all colleges in the university 
during the summer sessions. 

As Dean of Women, Dr. Ada V. Hyatt, is 
recognized for her liberal, modern point of view 
and has preserved for Kent State women the 
freedom she believes they are capable of using 

As Dean of Women, Dr. Hyatt has been a 
very important factor in bringing to this campus 
the highest-ranking national sororities. She 
also supervised in the reorganization of rushing 
and pledging practices used by the sororities. 

Dean Hyatt also acts in an advisory capacity 
to Pan-Hellenic council and Women's League 
and helps to formulate their policies. She also 
works closely with off-campus housemothers 
for the best in rooming facilities. 


Ada V. Hyatt 


Emil Berg 


Following in the hard-to-fill footsteps of E. C. Stopher, 
Registrar Charles Atkinson is doing a competent job of 
handling the important tasks assigned to the Registrar 
of a university. 

Dr. Atkinson was appointed to the position after the 
unexpected death of Mr. Stopher, who had held the 
position for a number of years. 

Handling all the funds of a state university is quite 
a large task, but the position is competently filled by 
Paul E. Beck, comptroller. 

Besides the job of signing all the checks for the 
several hundred working students and faculty, he must 
supervise the expenditure of all the money spent by the 

Working as the second man on a two man team with 
the comptroller is Emil Berg, Kent State University's able 
Business Manager. 

He is in charge of the problem of where and how to 
spend the money. At present his biggest task is with 
the new construction that is being carried on now at 
the university. 

The task of running a university in a high school 
building in downtown Canton is handled by Clayton M. 

Although the students are with him for only two 
years, Professor Schindler knows most of them and 
encourages them to complete the remaining two years 
of their education.

Rena E. Matson 

Rena E. Matson assumed her duties as Assistant 
Dean of Women in September of 1948. She came to Kent 
from Lewiston, Idaho, but her home is in Akron. One of 
her many jobs as Assistant Dean of Women is being in 
charge of all sorority rushing activities. 

Acting as advisor to the Booster Club may not fall 
in line with a military life, but it shows the varied interest 
held by Lieut. Col. Thomas Wall, commanding officer 
of the ROTC unit at the university. At present there are 
400 enrolled in the ROTC unit. 

Seeing to it that more than one thousand students 
are fed is the task of Ernestine Williams, Head Dietician. 
She not only has the girls in the dorm to feed twenty 
times a week, but also the men at Terrace Lodge. 
Ordering, preparing and serving meals for that number 
keeps her quite busy. 

Publishing the yellow-bound general catalog is one 
of the many tasks performed by Alfred A. Crowell. In 
addition to teaching courses in journalism, he publishes 
a three hundred page annual bulletin for the university 
and many leaflets for the individual departments. 

Trying to find jobs for the graduating seniors is start- 
ing to be quite a problem, but Dr. Lester Munzenmayer 
has helped many KSU graduates to good positions, and 
will continue to do so in the future. As director of the 
placement bureau he keeps a file on every graduate 
of the university, and helps them in obtaining a job. 

Finding rooms in the last couple of years has been 
quite a job, but Mrs. Rhema Fair, Director of Residences 
has handled the task without much difficulty consider- 
ing the shortage of rooms that exists around the

Eldred Savires, Assistant Dean of Men, assumed 
the position in August of 1948. While serving in this 
position he is also working on his masters degree. It 
is his job to work with the men on the campus and help 
the Dean of Men with his work. 

As Director of Admissions, Richard Rotzell is respon- 
sible for admission of each new student to the univers- 
ity. This consists of evaluating credits from high school 
and other colleges as well as consulting with students 
as they advance from one division to another. 

Getting the university's name before the people is 
the job of Michael Radock and his public relations staff. 
With a staff of student assistants he sends news about 
students and the university to the publications in this 
area and over the entire country. 

Lawrence Wooddell, Superintendent of Maintenance, 
sees that supplies are brought from the warehouse, 
makes sure that all the rooms are kept clean, and issues 
permits to students who wish to stay in the building 
overtime. He is in charge of a crew of two hundred 

Acting as a link between the President and the 
students is Mrs. Alice Makinson, Secretary to the Presi- 
dent. With her help the President is able to conduct the 
business of running the university without being inter- 
rupted at all times during the day. 

Dr. Amos Heer, Director of Teacher Training, sees to 
it that a sound practical background is obtained for 
every student graduating from the College of Education. 
Through the system of practice teaching, young teachers 
gain some valuable experience while in school.

The fall term started with a record enrollment of 
5,700 students enrolled on the campus. The total en- 
rollment for both the Kent and the Canton campuses 
was 6,500. 

The "Frosh" was greeted with the phrase "scrub 
that seal" and "dink" wherever he turned, and school 
spirit soared to a new high. 

The rigor of registration with its long lines and com- 
plicated forms was an old headache for the upper- 
classmen, but to the new students it was quite confusing 
along with taking placement tests and physical exam- 

Freshman week was more than just the arrangement 
of class schedules and examinations. The introduction 
to college life was highlighted by an informal reception 
at the President's home. 

For the upper classman it meant returning to the 
routine of classes, library work and exams. It also 
meant dances, parties and rushing for the Greeks. 

The month of October saw the Golden Flashes foot- 
ball team go undefeated in their first four games before 
being tied by Western Reserve. The Flashes dropped 
the next two games in a row before hitting the win 
column against Akron university and the University of 

A spirited pep rally was held before the Youngstown 
game at Prentice gate and a snake dance, led by the 
university band was staged through the downtown 
district. Following the game a dance was held at Wills 
gym, and the traditional paddle was given to Youngs- 
town college to be held by them again this year and 
for quite some time since we have dropped them from 
our football schedule. 

Plans were completed for the "better relations" dance 
with Akron university, and it looked like the trouble that 
perceded the game last year would be avoided in this 
year's game.

Numerous organizations were planning parties and 
organizing events to keep the students on the campus 
over the week-ends. 

The ISA planned and held a successful hay ride that 
was well attended by all the independent students on 
the campus, and a clamor for more of the same was 
heard on the campus following the event. 

The Booster Club was making plans and holding 
spirited pep rallies before the important football games, 
and school spirit seemed to reach an all-time high 
during these rallies. 

The university band could be found in the afternoons 
on the practice football field going through their intricate 
maneuvers that showed up so well during the half-time 




Beta Gamma 


More than 8,000 people attended this year's Home- 
coming Day celebration, which made it the largest in 
the school's history. 

All the Greek houses were gaily decorated to wel- 
come back the alums, and after the judging was com- 
pleted, the Delta Gamma's and the Phi Beta Phi's 
emerged victorious. 

The Homecoming game did not turn out to our ad- 
vantage, the final score being 21-14, but the half-time 
show compensated for the loss of the game. Student 
Council president, Phil Dempsey crowned Marilyn 
Taylor queen and presented flowers to the gueen and 
her attendants, Lois Musick and Ruth Ann Gallagher. 

President George A. Bowman and President Frank J. 
Prout of Bowling Green gave brief speeches welcoming 
the alums of Kent State university back to school. 

The day ended with a dance held in Wills Gym- 
nasium in honor of the "old grads". Everybody left 
with fond hope of being able to return again next year 
for a bigger and better affair than the last one.

Again this year as in years gone by the traditional 
competition among Greek organizations was temporar- 
ily put aside to make way for the display of social grace 
and latest in evening wear at a special formal dance. 

The dance was the annual All Greek formal, spon- 
sored by the Alpha Phi sorority to honor their new 
pledges. This year eighteen pledges were honored and 
given their official welcome at the "coming out party" 
held at East Market Gardens ballroom in Akron at the 
end of the Fall quarter. 

Eleanore Kolk, president of the Alpha Phi sorority, 
was in charge of the ball, one of the bright spots on 
the fraternity and sorority social calendar. 

Banners of each organization on campus decorated 
the spacious ballroom for the All Greek affair, and a 
high spot in the evening's entertainment was the "Song 
Intermission" when each group serenaded those in the 
audience with its fraternity song, with the Kappa Sigs 
and Beta Gams giving an impressive rendition of the 
"Battle Hymn of the Republic".

In the month of December an overflow crowd

auditorium to hear an address by the Honorable 
Sumner Welles. It was one of the largest 
crowds ever to witness an assembly in the 
history of the university. 

Also during the month of December, the girls 
at Moulton Hall put on their finest formals to 
enjoy their annual Christmas formal, the "Mint 
Prom", which was held in the Music Room in 
Moulton Hall. 

The week before Christmas vacation found 
the Greeks making the rounds of the sorority 
and fraternity houses and dorms singing Christ- 
mas carols.

Roger Howard presents the attendants with 


Martha Graham, who presented her show 
at the university. 

The annual Top Hop was held during the month of 
January with Miss Kent State being presented with a 
trophy during intermission. 

Miss Kent State for 1949 was Ruth Ann Gallagher, 
Delta Gamma, who was elected this honor by student 
vote. Miss Gallagher was elected from a field of three, 
the other two being Jean Milford, Alpha Phi, and Martha 
Lansinger, ISA. 

At intermission the queen was escorted to the throne 
by heads of all Greek organizations and the ISA.

Students, faculty and townspeople jammed 
the auditorium again this year to witness the 
annual Pork Barrel presentation by groups on 
the campus. 

The planning and arranging for this annual 
show is done by Women's League and Men's 

This year as the year before, eliminations 
were held the night before the final show to 
eliminate those shows of lower calibre and to 
cut down the running time of the presentation. 

The winners in their respective divisions on 
the final night were Engleman hall, Industrial 
Arts club, Alpha Phi sorority and Gamma Tau 
Delta fraternity. 

The annual Masque Ball was held during the 
month of February. The dance was sponsored 
this year by Women's League, Men's Union 
and the Art Club. 

During the intermission of the dance, the 
Chestnut Burr Queen for 1949 was crowned and 
presented with a trophy from the staff and 
flowers from Men's Union. 

Miss Betty Jean Smeltzer, Kappa Kappa 
Gamma, was chosen queen by Mr. G. W. 
Churchill, foreign pictorial editor of Life maga- 
zine. Her court included Miss Betty Reddrop, 
Alpha Xi Delta, Miss Sally Koch, Alpha Xi 
Delta, and Miss Carol Volkman, Alpha Phi. 

There was no admission charge for the dance 
this year, but costumes were preferred. Many 
unique and original costumes could be seen at 
the gala affair. The gym for this dance was 
decorated the best that it has ever been deco- 
rated. The topic of conversation throughout the 
dance centered around the decorations, which 
were of a reincarnation theme carried out in 
abstract drawings.

Vic Moore's dream of a gym team and gym meet 
finally came true during March, when the Flashes were

The finale of the Delta Gam's winning skit. 

The Pork Barrel for 1948 looked more like 
professionals at work on the stage instead of 
amateurs. Competition each year is becoming 
keener and this year was no exception. 

The dialogue was excellent, the costumes 
were unique and original, and the lighting and 
staging left nothing to the imagination. 

In the sorority division the Delta Gammas 
came through with flying colors to capture the 

In the fraternity division the Gamma Tau 
Delta fraternity presented a brief review of pre- 
vious events at KSU to win the award in their 
respective division. 

An overflow crowd witnessed the show and 
was pleased with every "skit" that was pre- 
sented during the evening. 


The annual Penny Carnival sponsored by 
Blue Key was held during April of '48 with all 
the proceeds going to the stadium drive. 

The gym on that evening looked like the mid- 
way at Ringling Bros, circus, with fraternities, 
sororities and organizations having stands 
around the entire gym. 

The Alpha Xi Delta sorority with their "House 
of Horrors" and "Leg Toss" collected the most 
money among the sororities. 

Delta Phi Sigma with their basketball shoot- 
ing stand took top honors among the fraternities. 
The idea of Penny Carnival originated dur- 
ing the war to collect money to send "Staters" 
to KSU men in the armed forces. Since then it 
has been carried on with the money going to 
any worthwhile cause.

The Beta Gam's 
winning float. 


Starting with the traditional painting of the "K" by 
the DU's and the presentation of the "K" girl, Isla 
Schnauffer, Campus Day festivities got under way. 

Cardinal Key women led a solemn procession of 
queen contenders from the steps of Lowry to the lower 
campus, where Student Council president, Tom Davey, 
announced the May Queen, Daisy Taylor. 

Following crowning of the May Queen and the May- 
pole dance was the float parade. The parade this year 
was elaborate and showed much ingenuity on the part 
of the participants. The winning float in the fraternity 
division was the Kappa Sigma Chi's. They used the 
idea of world peace, with a large float of the world 
with Stalin and Uncle Sam on top. 

In the sorority division the Beta Gamma's copped 
top honors with a float of a dutch windmill, and a num- 
ber of girls walking beside the float dressed in dutch 

In the evening the students gathered on the lower 
campus to hear the songfest. Delta Upsilon won the 
fraternity division with their rendition of "Send Forth 
Thy Spirit" and Delta Gamma took first place in the 
sorority division singing "All The Things You Are".

After months of study and hard work, the students 
and faculty spent a day of relaxation at Brady Lake 
to witness the eighth annual Rowboat Regatta. 

The day's activities began with a softball game 
between Delta Phi Sigma, the fraternity champs, and 
a faculty team led by Trevor Rees. After the smoke 
from the battle had cleared, the Delts were declared 
the winners by a 21 to 1 score. 

Following the softball game came the judging of the 
regatta queen, which was won by Carol Stofcho, who 
reigned over the day's activities. 

The Independent race was won by Bob Speno and 
John Grimaldi rowing for ISA, but only after they had 
nosed out the Friars club in a thrilling race. In the 
women's division, WAA copped first place with Bernice 
Looney and Jean Walcott at the helm. 

Delta Upsilon captured first place in the fraternity 
division and Jean Fulweber and Mary Beth Sherman 
rowing for Gamma Phi Beta won first place in the 
sorority race.

After four years of studying, worrying and 
cramming, the goal of all college students was 
attained. It was a memorable day for approxi- 
mately 660 seniors, when the late Dr. E. C. 
Stopher handed them their degrees. 

The years between that first day of registra- 
tion during freshman week and the last time 
the graduate would walk in a solemn proces- 
sion from McGilvrey hall to the auditorium were 
filled with fond memories. Even though they 
had worked hard toward their goal and reached 
it, it would be rather hard to leave a place that 
had so many enjoyable moments.

Scenes from William Shakespeare's immortal tragedy, "Romeo and Juliet' 


The past season of the University Theatre was per- 
haps the finest and most successful season in the 
Theatre's history. The five plays which were presented 
marked all-time highs in attendance records. 

Wes Egan, the technical director of the University 
Theatre, directed his first play at the University, "Village 
Green". The play starred Ed Shelton, an "old-timer", 
and Phyllis Phillips, a "new-comer". 

When the students returned in the fall, Professor 
E. Turner Stump directed the David Belasco production, 
"The Return of Peter Grimm". This play was well- 
received here at the university and was taken on the 
road to Central Michigan and Bowling Green. 

The highly successful production of Lillian Hellman's 
"Another Part of the Forest" was given and Professor 
Earle Curtis served notice of future hits to come when 
he turned in a brilliant job in the direction of this play. 

The hard-luck play, the annual freshman production, 
"Yes and No", was directed by Mrs. Katherine Norton. 
Postponement of the play was forced upon Mrs. Norton 
when just four hours before opening curtain one of the 
leads, Jackie Gelbman, was stricken with pneumonia 
The play was re-scheduled at the beginning of the 
winter quarter and was a successful production. 

Then came the theatre's annual classic production, 
William Shakespeare's immortal tragedy, "Romeo and 
Juliet". This play marked the return to the University 
Theatre of Professor G. Harry Wright after a successful 
season as director of the Kent State University Show- 
boat, on the river last summer. Mr. Wright turned in his 
usual fine job of direction. Many new innovations in 
the Shakespearian drama were tested successfully by 
Mr. Wright and Mr. Egan, technical director. This com- 
pleted a fine entertaining season by the UT.

When the shriek of the calliope heralded the 
coming of the showboat on the Ohio and 
Kanawha rivers last summer, university stu- 
dents and their professors were aboard to revive 
the old-time entertainment. 

Bringing back a bit of yesteryear, the floating 
theater served as both an actors' laboratory and 
a fond memory of days gone by. The hiss for 
the villain and the cheer for the hero were inter- 
spaced between vaudeville acts on the three- 
month tour, sponsored by KSU. 

G. Harry Wright, professor of speech, char- 
tered the show boat "Majestic", the last of its 
kind to play along the rivers, after a visit to its 
captain, T. J. Reynolds. At that time he in- 
spected the "Majestic" and found it in excellent 
condition despite a war-enforced layoff. 

Members of the cast hang the sign on the "Majestic". 

Wilbur and Nick spend some time studying their lines.

Success to Professor Wright's plan to bring 
back the showboat was aided by 14 of his stu- 
dent actors, dancers, musicians, and singers at 
the university and nine students from Hiram 
college taking summer courses at Kent, who 
also made the trip. 

It was conducted as a summer class with 
Prof. Robert I. Pearce, head of the Hiram speech 
department, who helped with the teaching and 
directing chores. The students slept, ate, and 
entertained on their buoyant classroom till 
Sept. 15. 

The idea Prof. Wright had in mind was to 
bring back some of the cultural heritage of 
America. Wright, at present, is considered the 
outstanding expert on show boats in the United

FIRST ROW: Owen McCafferty, Christine Vogt. 
SECOND ROW: Jean Milford, Peter Ulrich. 

Only a few of the dink hazed freshmen in the 
fall of 1945 scrubbed the university seal at 
Prentice Gate. The rest kept the Seal shining 
that year by stepping over it. 

For the next three years, they made others 
scrub to keep the Seal bright. Then, at the 
1949 June Commencement, they, much larger 
than last year's graduates, found the same 
university seal — still as bright as ever — im- 
pressed upon their degrees. 

Approximately six hundred seniors elected 
a co-ed council of four to conduct their class 
affairs. This council included Owen McCafferty, 
Pete Ulrich, Christine Vogt, and Jean Milford. 

Student Council chose Phil Dempsey as its 
president, and played the great game of cam- 
pus politics very progressively. Other seniors 
aiding Dempsey in Council included Roger 
Howard, Martha Lansinger, Wally Kotouch, 
Clarence Peoples, Curtis Sarff, and Phil Brustein. 

Dempsey also served as Managing Editor of 
the Kent Stater, and David Kaplan, another 
senior, held other campus posts such as Busi- 
ness Manager of the Chestnut Burr, vice-presi- 
dent of the ISA, Chief Justice of the Traffic 
Court, and editor and business manager of the 
1949 student directory. Now it is up to the class 
of '50 to handle the important posts on campus.

Activities of the Junior class were well under way 
following the fall quarter election of officers. Pres. Bill 
Jones took over his duties in December along with 
George Rybak, vice president, Gretchen Rader, treas- 
urer, and Jacqueline Duke, secretary. 

Plans were immediately set forth to sponsor the 
election of the most popular university man and woman. 
They were introduced at the annual 'Popularity Ball'. 

The second big task which is undertaken yearly by 
the junior class is the preparation for the junior-senior 
prom. An affair which is always number one social 
event of the year lived up to its expectations and was 
an immense success in 1949. 

Outstanding juniors in university activities were 
numerous and to name them all would take pages. 

Marilyn Taylor was elected by student vote to reign 
as queen at Homecoming which was a huge success 
despite the loss to Bowling Green on the football field. 
Ruth Ann Gallagher became the "Miss Kent State" of 
1949 in a close election. 

In the University Theatre production of "Peter 
Grimm" junior Ed. Shelton very ably portrayed Peter. 
In sports the junior class's outstanding donations were 
Wib Little in football and Dale Haverstock and Leroy 
Thompson on the basketball floor. 

Another year finished, the junior class now is 
looking forward to its last year at the university with 
as much enthusiasm as it showed upon entering the 
junior standing.

When the final votes were gathered and counted 
it was found that history had repeated itself. For Dick 
Rice, last year's Freshman class president, had been 
elected sophomore class president. 

His assistants in organizing the class included 
Cid Dettor, vice-president; Joanne Hall, secretary; and 
Stu Hull, treasurer. This group lead the class activities 
and planned for the class dance and picnic which 
was held. 

The sophomore class could rightfully boast the 
athletic prowess of such athletes as Joe Kotys, 1948 
Olympic gymnastic participant and letterman in wrest- 
ling, and swimming and gymnastics; Bob Pease, 
football; George Fulton, basketball; and Dean Johnston, 

Of the four members on the Assembly Committee, 
three of them were members of the Sophomore class. 
They were David Brand, Dot Marburger and Pat Sutton. 

In Student Council the sophomore class was repre- 
sented by Nancy Reddrop, who was a holdover from 
the previous year. 

Although late in organizing, the sophomore class 
rounded out in short order and was able to carry on 
the traditions that had been started by previous 

They are now prepared to take over some of the 
duties that will be bestowed on them as juniors and 
handle them with as much efficiency as they did their 
sophomore responsiblities.

"Youth, Youth, why must it be wasted upon the 

We hate to disagree with GBS but it certainly hasn't 
been wasted upon this years 1300 freshmen. After the 
first hectic and confusing weeks the frosh put their 
shoulders to the wheel and nose to the grindstone and 
set down to work . 

At the first freshman class meeting President Bow- 
man spoke to the students informally about participation 
in extra-curricular activities. Introduced by Council 
President, Phil Dempsey, the Freshman class advisors 
Jo Haggerty and Chuck Fletcher explained class dues 
and balloting. 

The Committee of 40 led by President Dick Davis 
was organized under the Booster Club for the advance- 
ment of school spirit among the Freshmen. 

The Freshmen Players of the University Theater 
presented the hilarious English play, "Yes and No", by 
Kenneth Home featuring Jackie Gelbman, Vern Roberts, 
Mary Lou Home, Norma Remmy, Dick Johnston, and 
John Biggs in the major roles. The entire production was 
under the direction of Mrs. Katherine Moore Norton. 

After hectic campaigning the Freshman class went 
to the polls with the following results: Ralph Gunnar 
was elected president; John Stahlman, vice-president; 
Betty Naugle, secretary, and Margaret Menges, treas- 
urer. Gene Taggert, Larry Marchesano, Harry Mol- 
doven and Bill Roberts were elected Frosh posts in 
Men's Union while Pete Demos, Marge Buckles, Leroy 
Tunnel and Bonnie Sue Rader were representatives 
on the Student Council. 

Ralph Gunnar. Margaret Menges, John Stahlman. 


A scene from the freshman presentation "Yes and No' 

Hal Stoneman measures head sizes for freshman dinks. 

"To dink or not to dink", that 
was the question which con- 
fronted some 1300 puzzled 
freshmen this fall. 

However, after the butterflies 
left the stomachs of the "fright- 
ened and frustrated freshies" 
they set down to work, which is 
usually the case in all freshman 


Wherever there were ireshmen there were lines. 

Nancy Waterhouse doesn't seem very happy with her job. 


The Registrar's office was a crowded place during the week. Mr. Beck "shot" guite a few freshman during freshman week.

Seeing to it that there is better coordination 
among the fraternities on the campus is one 
of the primary aims of Inter-Fraternity Council. 

Membership in this organization consists of 
the president of each fraternity and one other 
member of the fraternity. Their meetings are 
held on alternate Wednesdays. 

For the past year Curt Sarff, Kappa Sigma 
Chi, was president, Don Smith, Alpha Phi Beta, 
was vice-president, secretary was Pete Culler of 
Gamma Tau Delta, and treasurer was John Finn 
of Delta Phi Sigma. 

One of the main projects for the group is 
the awarding of the scholarship cup to the frat- 
ernity with the highest point average. This cup 
is presented to the winning group at a special 
banquet held during the spring quarter. 

The council also controls rushing and pledg- 
ing, serving as a coordinating body between the 
campus fraternities and the administration. At 
present all clubswishing to be installed as 
fraternities on the Kent campus must be passed 
on by Inter-Fraternity council before they can 
operate as a recognized local fraternity.

Pan Hellenic council takes time out each fall 
from organizing rush lists and rules to sponsor 
the first tea of the rushing season, the annual 
Round Robin. 

A bridge tournament is also sponsored by 
the council which awards a trophy each spring 
to the sorority having the highest scholastic 
average for the year. 

Representatives from seven of the national 
sororities and one local sorority made up this 
year's council. 

All rules governing rushing, pledging and 
other interfraternity relations are acted upon 
by the group. 

Advisor for the council for the past year 
was Miss Rena Matson, assstant dean of 
women. This group works on close unity with 
the dean of women's office. 

Officers for the group were Elizabeth Steve, 
president, and she was assisted in her tasks by 
Bonnie Kaiser, secretary and Pat Schaeffer,

Trevor Rees 


It's been a long road since Athletic Director 
Trevor Rees revived football at Kent State in 
1946, but in those three years, "Trev" and his 
staff have brought this school to a position of 
high esteem in state football circles. 

This year the Flashes invaded the East coast 
for the first such trip in school history and 
humbled the Huskies of Connecticut worse than 
the Yale Bulldogs, Levi Jackson and all, could 

Trev has added some fine frosh and sopho- 
more talent which will make the Flashes strong 
for many years to come. 

Starting with a group of war veterans in 1946, 
Rees built his machine into a growing organi- 
zation. The peak performances from that crew 
have not been reached yet, since most of them 
will still be around come next fall. 

Rees, an All-American end at Ohio State in 
1935, is assisted in his football chores by line- 
coach Wesley Stevens, ex-Purdue luminary, 
guard coach Karl Chesnutt of Ohio University, 
end coach Dave McDowell, one of the all-time 
greats of Muskingum college and George Lynn, 
captain of the national champion grid team at 
Ohio State in 1942.

Starting the '48 season off with a win over Mount 
Union, the Golden Flashes broke the Purple Raiders 
two-year record of not having been beaten on their 
home field. 

All-Ohio Wilbur Little continued as in '47 by 
scoring all three of KSU touchdowns in the tilt with the 
final score being 18-0. 

Working from the short punt formation, the Blue and 
Gold worked the two team system, offensive-defensive, 
to perfection. The Raiders were held to a net ground 
gain of 42 yards and picked up 66 yards via the aerial 
route. Kent picked up 338 yards.

Opening their home schedule, the Golden Wave 
rolled up a 39-0 win over a hapless Wooster eleven 
before a crowd of over 8,000. 

Starting slowly, the Blue and Gold rolled for 32 
markers in the second period. Two recovered fumbles 
and pass interceptions accounted for three of the second 
stanza six-pointers. 

The victory broke a two game jinx held over KSU 
gridders by the Scots. In their only two previous 
meetings, 1937 and 1947, the Wooster club entered the 
clashes as underdogs and won both times.

The Yellow Jackets of Waynesburg College were 
next on the Blue and Gold victim list. Again waiting until 
the second quarter to move, the Flashes pushed over 14 
points in that period and finished on the long end of a 
34-7 count. 

Kicking the first extra-point of the game, Frank 
Mesek started on a continuous successful place- 
kicking mark that reached 23 straight before the final 
curtain dropped on the season. 

Despite a field wet from rain, the Blue and Gold 
moved 303 yards under the lights against only 74 for 
the Pennsylvanians and completed 6 out of 13 passes.

Sparked by Wib Little, the Golden Wave rolled for 
their fourth straight win of the year when they treked 
to Central Michigan to take the measure of the Chip- 
pewa's 28-0. 

Hitting for 332 yards on the ground and 37 in the air, 
the Flashes held the Chips to 98 yards. Ishen Williams, 
passing ace for the Chips, was held to only five 
completions for a total of 34 yards due to the fine 
defensive work of ends Radabaugh and Jim Betteker. 

Two touchdowns were scored by Little, and Gene 
Hudson and Bob Beachy scored the remaining two for 
the day.

Instead of notching their fifth victory over the Red 
Cats of Western Reserve, the Reesmen picked up a 14- 
14 tie on a rain soaked League Park field before 3,400 

Little again supplied the punch for the Blue and Gold 
as he slipped loose for 42 yards in the second quarter 
for the first score. Ray Hyser, defensive center inter- 
cepted a Red Cat pass and charged 36 yards for the 
final Flash score of the game. 

Taking a second-half kick-off, Reserve speedster Len 
Corbin bulled from his own 3-yard stripe, straight up 
the field for the score. The game was tied in the final 
period by the Cats. 



Mesek makes good Ihe extra point against Reserve. 


Bragg cuts loose on an end run against Youngstown. 

Still gunning fcr their fifth win, the Flashes hosted 
Youngstown College in a night tilt, but with the help 
of two pass interceptions, lost the battle, 19-7. 

Lacking the services of Wib Little due to an ankle 
injury, the Flashes couldn't roll themselves, and also 
couldn't stop Al Campana, Penguin ace. Scoring two of 
the visitors touchdowns, Campana proved to be the 
same thorn in the Blue and Gold's side that he was in 
'47 when he also scored twice. 

Holding their own in the statistical department, the 
Reesmen averted a shutout on a pass from Jerry Tuttle 
to Fred Russell.

With 12,000 Homecoming fans in the stands, the Blue 
and Gold fell before a powerful BeeGee combine as the 
Falcons continued their unbeaten skein. 

In the first five minutes of the clash, the BeeGees 
capitalized on a fumble and a blocked kick to push over 
14 points and eventually win the ball game, 23-14. 

After the initial scoring, the Blue and Gold fought 
back and dominated the clash after the halftime inter- 
mission. Russell and Little each tallied but the Falcons 
were never headed. They picked up another six-points, 
and a safety rounded out the day's scoring. 



Little breaks through for a short gain against BG. 


Capra stops Scruggs for a short gain. 

Despite the lack of pre-game uprising in either camp, 
the annual meeting of the Blue and Gold with its arch- 
rival Akron U. was one of the best games of the year 
from the KSU standpoint. 

Pushing over four touchdowns and one field-goal, 
the Golden Wave handed the Zippers a 31-0 defeat with 
Wib Little scoring three times. 

Playing before 14,000 Rubber Bowl fans, the Flashes 
outclassed the Zips all the way as Little and former 
defensive back Fred Russell rolled up the yardage 
which totaled 341.

Sent on their way East by a crowd of over 1,000 
faithful followers, the Golden Wave made their first 
invasion of Eastern football circles and came home with 
a 42-26 win over the UConns of Connecticut university 
on the record books. 

Playing at Storrs, Conn, in the season finale, the 
Reesmen bagged six touchdowns and Frank Mesek 
added six extra-points. Little led in the Flash scoring 
with two tallies and Beachy, Bob Pease, Neal Nelson 
and Roy Snyder each contributed one marker. 

The Flashes held a half-time lead of 21-7. 



Little snags a long pass to score a TD. 


Joe Begala 


For 17 years, the university wrestling team 
has been in the hands of one man, Joe Begala. 
Back in 1929 Coach Begala came to Kent State 
and took over the mat squad from "Doc" Rob- 
erts and since then, except for war-time duty 
with the United Stated Navy, the Flash grap- 
plers have been coached by him. 

Including last year's decisions, the Blue and 
Gold matmen have an all-time percentage of 
.841 wins and three of the editions from "Be- 
gala's Beach" have gone through a season un- 
defeated, which has won KSU quite a reputation 

in wrestling. 

In his undergraduate days at Ohio university, 
Begala gained the title of "Iron Man" after 
winning both the 175-pound and heavyweight 
bouts in a match against Purdue university. His 
college activities also extended to the gridiron 
where he earned himself an All-Ohio title at 

Under Coach Begala's tutelage, the Flash 
squads, in addition to dual meet competition, 
have notched eight wins out of 1 1 tries at the 
annual inter-state meets held at Cleveland.

Dave McDowell 


Taking over the reins of a college basketball 
team for the first time in his career, Dave Mc- 
Dowell turned out one of the best Blue and Gold 
hardwood squads of all time. Coming to the 
university in September, McDowell took the 
place of ex-Flash mentor Harry Adams who 
resigned last June. 

The 235-pound, 27-year-old native of Cuya- 
hoga Falls, has been mixed up in athletics 
since he entered school. At Falls high he par- 
ticipated in three sports and later at Muskingum 
college he captained both the basketball and 
football teams. 

While at Muskingum in 1942 he was named 
to both All-Ohio and All-Ohio Conference 
basketball teams. Working with last year's 
squad with the exception of Bill Sudeck and 
Harry Anderson, McDowell has built this year's 
combine into one of Ohio's best hardwood 

Dale Haverstock, Fred Klasiner, Leroy 
Thompson, Jerry Amico, John Colliver and 
George Fulton, were the mainstays of Mc- 
Dowell's 1949 issue of the Flash quintet. 

The same players will be back again next 
year to form a strong team with quite a bit of

The 1948-49 basketball season was the best 
in the history of Kent State University, and it did 
a great deal to further the university's policy of 
endeavoring to inaugurate the "new era" in 

Coach Dave McDowell's men achieved a rec- 
ord of 20 wins in 28 games, including the two 
Ohio conference tournament games, in which 
Kent won the first one against Mt. Union, but 
couldn't hit their stride in the following game 
and lost to Akron. 

The team was led in scoring by All-Ohio 
Leroy Thompson, with Fred Klaisner, Captain 
Dale Haverstock, George Fulton and John Coll- 
ver contributing heavily to the offensive power 
of the team. 

Coach McDowell will have the starting five 
back again next year along with Jerry Amico 
and numerous other fine varsity men, which 
should give Kent another record breaking sea- 
son to better the record achieved by this year's 

Although the Golden Flashes didn't win the 
Ohio conference tournament, they were runners- 
up and received a fine trophy for their efforts. 

In the Youngstown tournament held during 
the Christmas holidays the Flashes proved to 
be the toughest of the four teams and walked 
off with the championship and trophy without 
too much trouble. 

Considering their won and lost record and 
these two tournament records, the coach, squad 
and student body can well be proud of this 
year's team. 

In their three games with the arch rival Akron, 
the Flashes lost the first one on the Goodyear 
floor, but came back strong in the next game 
at Wills gym to win. The final game was 
played on the Wittenberg floor to determine the 
Ohio conference tournament champion. Akron 
proved to be the better of the two teams that 
night and won the championship. 

The Flashes lost only one game on their 
home floor this season and that was to the 
powerful Falcons from Bowling Green. 


Wes Kurtz scores a big one for Kent. 

Highlighting the 1948 baseball season were two 
wins over the Akron university Zippers. Winding up 
their schedule with a mark of 12 wins against 7 losses, 
the victories over Akron made complete the year's 
athletic dominance over the Zippers. 

The Blue and Gold nine also broke a record of nine 
years' standing. In 1939, the university nine rolled up 
seven wins. In the pitching department, big Hank Bur- 
meister tossed six straight victories for the Flash com- 

A 13-0 beating handed to Baldwin-Wallace was the 
highest scoring tilt of the 20-game slate, and sparking 
the Wes Steven's coached outfit was hard-hitting short- 
stop, Chuck Gromely. 


Joe Pisani scores again ior the Kent Nine.

Nineteen forty-eight's edition of the Kent State 
Golden Flashes turned in one of the finest set of records 
in university history as they racked up a five win, two 
loss mark and picked up third position in the Ohio 
conference meet held at Ohio Wesleyan. 

Opening the season with two losses, Coach Joe 
Begala's thinclads bounced back to win the remainder 
of their scheduled dual meets. Bowing only to Muskin- 
gum and Bowling Green, the Flashes stopped Mt. Union, 
Case, Western Reserve, Hiram, and Fenn. 

Sparking the squad were Henry Clark, Steve Eschuk, 
Tom Clark, Dick Mowery and George Morar.

The swimming team coached by Bill Hoover 
ran up against some tough luck at the start of 
the season when a couple of the crack mem- 
bers were lost for the season, but the team 
came through in fine style to record a seven 
win, five lost record. 

In the Fenn relays held in Cleveland, the 
team did better this year than they did last 
year when they copped a third in the relays 
compared to the fifth place of last year's team. 

In the Ohio conference meet held at Kenyon 
this year, the natators captured third place. Joe 
Kotys won the Ohio conference diving crown. 

This year's team was KSU's first entry in the 
National collegiate swimming meet held at 
Chapel Hill, North Carolina. 

Coach William Hoover 



Not since 1934 has the university had a golf 
team comparable to the '48 edition of the Flash 
linksmen. In addition to piling up eight wins 
against one loss in dual competition, the golfers 
took third place in the Ohio conference meet 
at Denison. 

They also tied the university record of six 
consecutive wins. The original mark was set 
in 1934. 

Falling before the on-slaught of the Flashes 
clubs were Mt. Union twice, Youngstown, West- 
ern Reserve, twice, Hiram and Akron. 

In the Ohio State tournament, the Flashes 
notched seventh place. 

Youngstown college spoiled the dual match 
record for the golfers of Coach Harry Adams as 
they turned the Flash linksmen back with a 
10-6 defeat in the seventh meet of the year.

Reorganized for the first time since pre-war 
days under Karl Chesnutt, the Blue and Gold 
tennis team moved through a nine dual match 
schedule with a six win, three loss mark. 

The victories came in pairs over Mt. Union, 
Kent State University Canton, and Hiram. West- 
ern Reserve took two decisions from the Flashes 
and Mt. Union's Purple Raiders copped the 

Jim Kline and Dick Brownsberger trekked to 
Kenyon to represent the university in the Ohio 
conference match but failed to get past the first 
two days' competition. 

Two shut-outs were effected by the squad as 
they blanked Mt. Union 9-0 and KSUC, 5-0. In 
their two wins over the Hiram Terriers, the 
combine gave up only one point each time as 
they triumphed 4-1 and 8-1.

Working with more organizations and teams, Vic 
Moore directed and guided all phases of competition 
between the various fraternities and independent groups 
on the campus in another year of intramural sports. 

Coming through as a dark horse, the Gamma Tau 
Delta fraternity copped the first place in interfraternity 
football competition, and then came back strong to win 
the all-university championship in volleyball, and cap- 
ture the trophy in the fraternity swimming competition. 

Maintaining their dominance as a basketball power, 
the Delta Phi Sigma's captured the all-university cham- 
pionship and also won games from the independent 
championship team from Hiram and the intramural 
champs from Akron university. 

The Delts also were the winners of the interfraternity 
wrestling crown to give them two of the coveted trophies 
by mid-season. 

In the track meet held last spring the Kappa Mu 
Kappa's pulled a first to win the trophy.

Under the auspices of the Women's Athletic Asso- 
ciation board composed of representatives from each 
sorority and dormitory, university women participate in 
athletics in a program similar to men's intramurals. 

They engage in ping-pong, soccer, badminton, 
volleyball, basketball, bowling and various other ath- 
letic events. The organization or sorority accumulating 
the most points receives the Women's Athletic Associa- 
tion trophy that is presented each year. 

Last year the trophy was won by the Alpha Xi 
Delta's. This year the competition seems to be much 
keener and it is an open race so far which any team 
might win. 

Advised by Miss Beverly Swidel, instructor in physi- 
cal education, the WAA attempts to present a suitable 
intramural athletic program in which any woman in 
residence is eligible to participate.

The Friars' Club was formally organized on 
January 27, 1948, by twenty students interested 
in forming a fraternity for Catholic men. With 
this aim in mind the members have developed 
one of the most prominent organizations on 

Now having a membership of sixty men, the 
Friars have been very active socially. Each of 
the eight sororities on campus has been a guest 
in their home at 225 East College street where 
they have been residing since June, 1948. 

Although the Friars are still in their infancy, 
they have already set the precedent for future 
members with the traditional "Gold Cup" formal 
dance to be held each winter quarter. For each 
quarter since their founding, the Friars have 
had a formal dance. 

Other traditions which the club has formu- 

lated are "The Friar", a monthly publication by 
the club, and Communion Sunday. The first 
Sunday of each month all of the brothers receive 
Holy Communion in a body at St. Patrick's 

Contributing their donation toward the sta- 
dium drive, the Friars' Club brought Spike Jones 
to K.S.U.'s campus. For two and one-half hours 
the audience split their sides with laughter at 
the "Big Nail" and his City Slickers' musical 
madness in his "Musical Depreciation Review". 

Realizing the potentialities for a group of 
young men having one common belief, Catho- 
licism, the members of the Friars' Club are 
whole-heartedly striving to promote intellectual 
and social inspiration on the campus. They 
look forward to becoming a local and someday 
a national fraternity. 



Promotion of Christian ideals and closer fellowship 
of college men is the aim of one of Kent's newest 
organizations, Delta Sigma Theta, national Methodist 
men's fraternity. 

The local chapter, Sigma, was officially installed 
June 5, 1948 when 21 men were initiated. Membership 
is now at 28. 

Following the initiation of the fall pledge class the 

fraternity's attention was focused on the Valentine 
Sweetheart dance. They also participated in many of 
the social activities of Wesley Foundation. 

William H. Saltsman directed the fraternity's activi- 
ties. Assisting him were Charles Kendig, David Sprang, 
Hobart Adams, John Collins, Bill Nicol, William Barth 
and Harold Province. 

C.A.R.E. packages were sent to the Europeans by the 
Elementary Education club which also co-operated in 
the European Teacher's aid program this year. 

Approximately 50 elementary education majors 
comprise the membership of the organization. 

Social highlight of the year was the spring banquet. 

Monthly meetings frequently feature outstanding speak- 
ers in the profession. 

Marion Brunswick performed the presidential duties 
for the organization. Janet Crawford served as secretary- 
treasurer and social chairman. Miss Susanne Koehler 
acted as faculty advisor to the group. 




Campus Night 1948 is well remembered for the 
trophy it brought to the recently organized Daughters 
of Mary club. The club was only two months old when 
it captured the Independent trophy in the annual parade 
of floats. 

Efforts of the members are directed toward a com- 
mon goal — to become a local catholic sorority. 

Meanwhile the club is participating in various uni- 
versity activities including Pork Barrel and the Row 
Boat Regatta. 

Directing the club's activities were Joan Beckman, 
assisted by Betty Buckley, Frances Stone, Delores 
Volpe, and Phyllis Cye. Miss Mellert and Rev. Cun- 
ningham acted as advisors to the group.

primary aim of the Inter- Varsity Christian Fellowship. 
This group was founded in 1946 and has grown from a

To give its members added training in man- 
agement by speakers in the field of business 
and also by movies is the worthwhile goal of 
the Society for the Advancement of Manage- 

Two banquets were held last year at the 
Mayflower hotel in Akron for the members and 
guests of SAM. 

The Society for the Advancement of Manage- 
ment is the recognized national professional 
society of management people in industry, com- 
merce, government and education. 

This organization represents no special inter- 
est, it is motivated by a selfless zeal to spread 
the benefits of scientific management. 

This recently founded organization has in two 
years increased its membership from 16 to 60 
upper-division students in the college of Busi- 
ness Administration. 

President of the organization was Thomas L. 
Shubert; Martin Barrett was vice-president; 
William Gulich, secretary; and David Sprang, 
treasurer. Professors Francis Mull and Ardin 
Hayes were advisors.

The growth of the Phi Kappa club since its 
founding two years ago has been indicative of 
its active and increasing participation in cam- 
pus functions. Founded by Harry Snyder, 
Richard Hyer, and Donald Clough, the member- 
ship in the organization now totals 53. The club 
was awarded the songfest cup of 1948 in the 
independent division. 

Among the various social activities engaged 
in by the members of the Phi Kappa club for the 
past year has been a Founders Banquet, plus 
participation in the many athletic events held 
on the campus throughout the year. 

Organized on the same basis as local fraterni- 
ties on campus, this organization aims to pro- 
vide an outlet to develop the talents, abilities 
and character of its members. 

Harry Snyder headed the club this year while 
Robert Hampton was vice-president; Richard 
Hyer, secretary; John Poor, treasurer; Jack 
Nolan, assistant treasurer; and William Salts- 
man, corresponding secretary. Serving as ad- 
visors were Dr. Foster Brooks, professor in the 
mathematics department; Mr. Robert Esser, pro- 
fessor in German; and Mr. William C. Darrah, 
professor in Business Administration.

the joy of congenial associates; 
good pay and an opportunity 
to get ahead. Come in and 
talk it over!
